To forget one's purpose is the commonest form of stupidity.

Faith in oneself - Few people have faith in themselves - and of these few some possess it as a useful blindness or partial eclipse of the mind (what they would behold if they could see to the bottom of themselves!), while the rest have to aquire it. Everything good, fine or great they do is first of all an arguement against the sceptic inside them. They have to convince or persuede him, and that almost requires genius. These are the great self-disatisfied people."

remembering one's purpose (in the Nietzschean sense) generally makes life so much harder. ;)

then again, here we are, the hard-headed one's who Need a purpose and other extras to feel worthwhile...

oh yeah, let's fly!
